RSS News

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. It's an easy way for you to keep up with news and information that's important to you. This content is called a "feed." This icon is the link to the RSS feed.

What is an RSS Reader?

An RSS reader is a small software program that collects and displays updates. It allows you to scan headlines from a number of sources in a central location, such as latest Victims of Crime Assistance Tribunal Practice Directions and Guidelines. RSS is written in the Internet coding language known as XML (eXtensible Markup Language).

Where can I get an RSS Reader?

Some browsers, such as the current versions of IE, Firefox and Safari have built in RSS readers. If you're using a browser that doesn't currently support RSS, there are a variety of RSS readers available in the web; some are free to download and others are available for purchase.

How do I use RSS Feeds?

The first step is to choose an RSS reader. Each reader has a slightly different way of adding a new feed, also called a "channel." Follow the directions for your reader. 

If you are new to RSS, read about RSS on the "What is" website, http://www.whatisrss.com/ or watch one of the videos on YouTube about how RSS works.
